I was at Target the other day and saw this lonely blaster on the shelf and it was very reasonably priced and I thought, "hmm.... I should buy that and give it away in a contest." Well, I thought it was a splendid idea.
I came up with the contest question while out with my brother and his friend playing baseball the other day. My glove is over 20 years old (gasp), and I have one that I bought in college about 8 years ago that I just never was able to break in, and is an outfielders glove (read: easier to catch with) which is larger than my glove I used to play third base. We had a laugh over who the stamped signature in my glove is since this player is long since retired. Then it hit me, there is the question.
**In light of the season kicking off tonight, and baseball being in full swing the contest question is:
What player's signature stamp is in the palm of my first baseball glove?
Hint: He was a pitcher.
The prize will be a 2006 Fleer Ultra blaster.
Also, feel free to share if your first glove had a signature in it, and who it was if you would like.
The contest will run from today until Wednesday to give everyone a chance to participate in case some people are away this weekend for the holiday. If no one guesses correctly, I will offer another hint.
